PNWMAS Meeting September 2014 w pics

Recommended Posts

The meeting at Garret's Was a BLAST!!! With Dave"Earth Bound" working the grill,Garret talking coral while running the show,Roy and his great presentation with pictures to match, and a full roster of TPA crew to assist the large turnout. There was a pretty good coral exchange going on and some extremely generous reefers helping out their fellow members,really cool to see the PNWMAS community just go wild.

 

and now a few pics.

First the Host with the most...Coral that is!(naughty)

The G-Man

 

Our ex-prez Roy gave us an awesome slide show with fantastic pictures. Many corals,anemones, and fish that I would love to have in my tank. Seeing some of these animals in the native waters as well as the Huge table acros and fields of staghorns was nothing short of impressive. I hope Roy posts a pic heavy thread with some of those shots he had shown for those who did not make it to this event.

JManrow it was nice meeting you in person,glad you made it out.As I said before if you find yourself planning a trip that comes through Corvallis let me know and maybe we can hang out for a bit and chat about the hobby more. You can see I indeed do still run a halide and they still grow mad coral. WP_20140921_022_zpsa35a0e6c.jpg

By the end of talking with Gumby I was envious. He has a taste for some of the more exotic corals and he shared a few pictures of some insane corals. I have a few from a previous meeting at Jeffs and I look forward to another trade.

Bicycle bill enjoying the TPA display tank after we had a good chat about fragging methods. I wonder if he is thinking about fragging out of the tank? WP_20140921_015_zpseb3434f3.jpg

Can't help but gaze into its awesomeness.

Sorry man I had a couple others but I really like the hand gestures. I communicate in a similar manner when I am getting into the subject.

Nice seeing everyone! Fortunately, the fragging some of us had in mind did not happen; as a result, both Scott's fairies lived to swim another day. (fish)

I had to pass on the wrasse for some prime coral and that would leave the whole faerie wrasse colony up for grabs. Did you see all of those baby seahorses? Talk about a herd.

There were Scott's fairy wrasses for sale???? I am totally looking for one!
We were all looking into the display wanting to take home some frags and that is when we started talking about fragging the wrasse,I am thinking that the fish in the display are not for sale but I could be wrong. I know if he went in with a net to catch him there would be plenty of frags to go round.
